an end to cancer?

That's what scientists are working on and according to two new studies published at the end of November, both methods are showing tremendous promise.

A report published in Sunday's edition of Nature Materials detailed tiny, magnetized "nanodiscs", around 60 billionths of a meter thick, that labratory tests found can be used to disrupt the membranes of cancer cells, causing them to self-destruct.

The discs are made from an iron-nickel alloy, which move when subjected to a magnetic field, damaging the cancer cells, the report said.

One of the study's authors, Elena Rozhlova of Argonne National Laboratory in the United States, said subjecting the discs to a low magnetic field for around ten minutes was enough to destroy 90 percent of cancer cells in tests.

This is probably the most promising and most interesting story I've seen in reference to a cure for cancer...

that is promising jewelzz, these are similar approaches, one using magnetic waves one using radio waves

this nano technology isn't going to have to be injected directly into the tumor, having to inject directly into the tumor makes it a little more difficult, this nano technology looks like it can seek tumor cells;

They designed a tiny polymer disk saturated with dendritic cells and antigens specifically tuned to go after tumor cells."
both ideas are great, let's hope they both prove as fruitfull as they appear to promise

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
